It's been just over four weeks since Creative Soul Retreat but it seems so much longer. I had an absolutely wonderful time, it was so nice to catch up ladies I hadn't seen since previous retreats and to meet others that I had only know online. I spent my two days there doing workshops with the lovely Stephanie Lee , it was fantastic. She is a great teacher and we had a lot of fun. Congratulations to Bevlea, she and her helpers did a fantastic job and I can't wait for CSR 2010. Here's some pictures of what I did in the classes.
This is the start of a necklace, still more to do yet.Some bezels, I really enjoyed this but I need to practice a lot more. Marg and I have had a get together since to play around with what we learnt and we do plan to do its on a regular basis so hopefully I will improve. The cover of the soldered book. I loved this class, flooding with the solder was great fun and I love the plaster pages; the feel of them and the noise they make when you open and closed the book. I still have to decorate the spine.
And here's a pic of what I did with the little houses from the swap. It doesn't show up very well as it's leaning on a wood bench but they are mounted onto an old fence paling. I've added some houses that I've received in other swaps as well. It makes quite a good village I think.
